MicroFlow gear meter
MicroFlow, a new positive displacement spur gear flow meter, is specifically designed to maintain high accuracies at very low flow rates, even with low viscosity liquids. This is important to engineers designing systems requiring flow measurement of continuous flows at rates as low as 3 cc/min or lower, depending on liquid viscosity. “The new MicroFlow is an important addition to our gear meter product portfolio, as it provides a very low flow, high resolution solution to our customers with the same quality and electronics compatibility as our other meters, even for those needing a hazardous rating,” stated Chris Husson, director of Engineering for AW-Lake Company. With a resolution of 40 pulses/cc, it gives the ability to measure shot volumes as low as 5cc’s with accuracies of ±0.5 percent better. This is especially important in the oil and gas industry where many applications are low volume and low flow applications.
